I cannot run calcHEP

Asked by Ram Chand on 2021-02-21

Dear Developers!
I cannot run calcHEP even though I have installed x11:

# CalcHEP has compiled successfuly and can be started.
# The manual can be found on the CalcHEP website:
# http://theory.sinp.msu.ru/~pukhov/calchep.html
# The next step is typically to run
# ./mkWORKdir <new_dir>
# where <new_dir> is the new directory where you will do
# your calculations. After creating this directory, you
# should cd into it and run calchep or calchep_batch.
# Please see the manual for further details.
#---------------------------------------------------------"
ramchand@MacBook-Pro calchep_3.8.7 % ./mkWORKdir ~/WORK-calHEP
ramchand@MacBook-Pro calchep_3.8.7 % ./calchep
zsh: permission denied: ./calchep
ramchand@MacBook-Pro calchep_3.8.7 % cd ~/WORK-calHEP
ramchand@MacBook-Pro WORK-calHEP % ./calchep
X Windows not detected.

Please help me
thank you,
Ram

I see
ramchand@MacBook-Pro WORK-calHEP % ./calchep
X Windows not detected.

Which means:
1) either you did not install X Windows
in this case you need to install X WIndows

2) or you have installed X windoes after you have tried to compile CalcHEP
in this case you need to do in CalcHEP installation directory

a) make clean
b) make
c) cd ~/WORK-calHEP
d) ./calchep

I guess yo need go though to do step 2) (if you really have installed X Windows

Let me know if this works for you

Best
Alexander
